Summary of Initiatives in Budget 2019

Summary of Initiatives in Budget 2019

Readers of the Budget have different information needs when looking at the new spending presented in the documents. To assist readers, this document presents the new initiatives contained in the Budget by ministerial portfolio and by Budget priority.

Each section does not build on the last, but repeats and recuts the same information. The total amount of funding in each section totals to the Budget 2019 package.

This document complements the Wellbeing Budget document, with greater detail on each new spending initiative in the Budget for your reference.

The 2019 Summary of Initiatives includes:

  • Section 1 provides an overview of the Budget allowances and spending for Budget 2019.
  • Section 2 lists the new initiatives in Budget 2019 by ministerial portfolio.
  • Section 3 provides detail on each initiative, under each of the Budget 2019 priorities. This also includes a breakdown of the reprioritisation initiatives.
  • Section 4 provides the key terms that are referred to in the Summary of Initiatives.
Disclaimer

The Appropriation (2019/20 Estimates) Bill and the Appropriation (2018/19 Supplementary Estimates) Bill, when enacted, will provide parliamentary authority for government spending. Efforts have been made to ensure that the details provided in this document are consistent with those in the two Appropriation Bills and in the supporting information in the 2019/20 Estimates of Appropriations and 2018/19 Supplementary Estimates of Appropriations. If there are any inconsistencies, what is in the Appropriation Bills prevails.

Some tables may not add up to the totals specified, owing to rounding.

1  Introduction and Overview

Budget 2019 - Key details

For Budget 2019, the operating allowance is $3.8 billion per annum, and $10.4 billion of the $14.8 billion of the multi-year capital allowance for Budgets 2019-2022 has been allocated.

The allowances are calculated in net terms, meaning that increases in spending maybe offset by increases in revenue, reductions in spending, or reprioritisation of existing spending. Gross new operating spending in Budget 2019 averages $4 billion per annum. This is offset by $236 million per annum of revenue, savings under representation initiatives on average, giving a net increase of $3.8 billion per annum. Gross new capital spending in Budget 2019 totals $10.7 billion. This is offset by $300 million of reprioritised funding.

Understanding total and average operating expenses and capital expenditure

The total funding figures included in this document cover different time horizons for operating expenses and capital expenditure.

Operating expenses
  • The total covers funding over the period of 2018/19 to 2022/23 (the current fiscal year, plus the next four fiscal years). Whenever a total operating funding figure appears, this is a five-year total.
  • The average is calculated by taking the total operating funding over the forecast period (2018/19 to 2022/23), divided by four. This is because there are four full fiscal years in the forecast period, and under the current Budget management approach, no funding is set aside in the current fiscal year for decisions from future Budgets.
Capital expenditure
  • For capital expenditure, the total covers funding over the period of 2018/19 to 2027/28 (the current fiscal year, plus the next nine fiscal years). Whenever a total capital funding figure appears, this is a ten-year total.

The reason for using a different time horizon is to ensure that the full investment on capital items can be reported, as in some cases capital expenditure on projects can fall outside the forecast period used by the Treasury.

Operating allowance in Budget 2019

The Budget operating allowance is on a per annum basis. On average, the Budget 2019 operating allowance is$3.8 billion per annum–over the four years 2019/20 to 2022/23 this totals $15.2 billion. This is an increase of $1.4 billion per annum from the Budget 2019 operating allowance signalled in the 2019 Budget Policy Statement.

The Treasury's fiscal forecasts also include allowances to be allocated in future Budgets. Figure 1 shows the cumulative impact of these operating allowances.

Figure 1 - Budget 2019 (average per annum) and future Budget operating allowances

Capital allowance

The 2019 Budget Policy Statement signalled a move away from single-year capital allowances to a rolling multi-year capital allowance (MYCA). This new approach provides flexibility to meet medium-term investment objectives while ensuring that near-term fiscal strategy can be achieved. It also improves the ability to take a longer-term view of capital commitments and increases transparency, by tracking and reporting more clearly the cash impact of initiatives over time.

The Budget capital allowance differs from the operating allowance, as it is invested on a one-off basis, rather than per annum, and is a rolling multi-year allowance. For Budget 2019, the multi-year allowance provides funding for Budgets 2019–2022, and uses $10.4 billion of the $14.8 billion available. This leaves $4.4 billion available for Budgets 2020-2022. The MYCA will be rolled out at the Half-Year Economic and Fiscal Update (HYEFU). The Government will decide on the amount that will be rolled out each year.

The total MYCA of $14.8 billion includes an increase of $1.7 billion from the MYCA allowance signalled in the 2019 Budget Policy Statement.

Figure 2 shows the capital allowances allocated in Budget 2019 and the remainder of the multi-year allowance.

Notes

  1. [1] The current fiscal year and the next four fiscal years. For Budget 2019, this is 2018/19 to 2022/23.
  2. [2] Average operating funding is the total operating funding over the forecast period (2018/19 to 2022/23) divided by four years (the Budget year of 2019/20, plus the next three years, but not the current fiscal year).
  3. [3] Subsequent years refers to years 2023/24 to 2027/28 for capital expenditure as capital expenditure is managed over a 10-year period. The subsequent years plus the individual years listed in Table 2 add to a 10-year total of expenditure.

2  Budget 2019 New Initiatives by Portfolio

Tables 3 and 4 below group new Budget initiatives by portfolio.

This section is particularly useful if you want to find the total net expenditure for initiatives led by each portfolio, such as Health or Education. Where one initiative affects multiple portfolios or Votes, it is only listed once, under the lead portfolio. This will include money going into other Votes. These portfolios are then split out in Section 3 – use the page reference in the left-hand column of Table 4 to jump to specific initiatives. If you are looking for the total Vote expenditure, see the relevant Estimates of Appropriations 2019/20 (also referred to in Section 3).

Mental health - a new frontline service

Expanding Access and Choice of Primary Mental Health and Addiction Support

Led by the Minister of Health. This initiative will enhance primary mental health and addiction responses across New Zealand to expand access and choice of mental health and addiction support, in particular for New Zealanders with mild to moderate needs. This will involve a national rollout phased over five years, which will make support available in a range of settings, including general practices, community settings, kaupapa Māori organisations, Pacific organisations and youth settings (including access to integrated therapies). Enhanced responses will be co-designed with whānau, communities, providers and other sector partners. This initiative also includes funding to upskill and expand the capacity of existing mental health and addiction workforces and to build new workforces. This will help to ensure New Zealanders are able to access support when and where they need it, and will contribute to improving people's mental health and wellbeing.

4  Key Definitions and Explanations

Appropriations - Legal authorities granted by Parliament to the Crown or an Office of Parliament to incur expenses or capital expenditure. All but permanent appropriations are set out in Appropriation Acts. The Government cannot spend public money without parliamentary authority. Appropriations can be thought of as capped amounts of funding for government expenditure on particular policies or areas, with a specified boundary. Any expenses incurred that are outside the boundary or are above the upper limit are-unlawful.

Average operating funding - Total operating funding divided by four years (the Budget year plus the next three years, but not the financial year about to end).

Baseline - The level of funding approved for any given area of spending (eg, Vote Education).

Capital - Capital expenditure is spending that results in an asset on the Government's books. An asset is expected to generate economic benefit and must be controlled by the Government. Capital expenditure includes purchasing physical assets (eg, building schools). Capital expenditure is managed on a 10-year basis for Budget allowance purposes.

Estimates - The Estimates outline for the financial year about to start (the Budget year) expenses and capital expenditure the Government plans to incur on specified areas within each Vote, and capital injections it plans to make to individual departments.

Fiscal year - The year from 1 July to 30 June of the following year.

Forecast period - The current fiscal year and the next four fiscal years. For Budget 2019, this is 2017/18 to2021/22.

Operating - Operating expenditure is spending that does not result in an asset on the Government’s books. Examples of operating expenditure are wages and schools’ operating grants. Operating expenditure is managed on a four-year basis for Budget allowance purposes.

Portfolio - Portfolios refer to areas of responsibility held by Ministers.

Reprioritisation - The reallocation of funding that has already been allocated to a particular policy/area to a new policy area.

Subsequent years - As capital funding is managed over 10 years, but the forecast period only goes out to 2021/22, subsequent years make up the remaining years (2022/23 to2026/27).

Supplementary Estimates - The Supplementary Estimates outline changes to expenses,capital expenditure and capital injections to departments required for the financial year about to end.

Tagged contingency - Funding that has been managed against the Budget allowances, but has not yet been included in appropriations. This may be for a number of reasons, such as commercial sensitivity, ongoing negotiations or if a business case is yet to be completed.

Total funding - capital - All capital funding over the next 10 years (2017/18 and 2018/19to 2026/27).

Total funding - operating - All operating funding over the forecast period (2017/18 to2021/22).

Vote - Appropriations are grouped into ‘Votes'. Generally, a Vote groups similar or related appropriations together (eg, Vote Health includes all health-related appropriations administered by the Ministry of Health). Although different appropriations in a Vote may be the responsibility of one or more Ministers, a Vote is administered by one department.
